EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

-------------------------------------------------------

CHAIN STITCH:
If you work outermost on the hook the chain stitch will often be too tight; 1 chain stitch should be as long as 1 double crochet is wide.

CROCHET INFORMATION:
At the beginning of each row of double crochets work 1 chain stitch (in addition to the first double crochet).
At the beginning of each row of treble crochets replace the first treble crochet with 3 chain stitches.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.5.

SQUARES:
Work 4 of each of the following squares:
SQUARE 1: See diagram A.1.
SQUARE 2: See diagram A.2.
SQUARE 3: See diagram A.3.
SQUARE 4: See diagram A.4.
SQUARE 5: See diagram A.5.

QUADRUPLE-TREBLE CROCHET:
Make 4 yarn overs, insert hook around stitch, pick up strand, make 1 yarn over and pull the strand through the first 2 loops on the hook *, repeat from *-* a total of 5 times = 1 stitch.

-------------------------------------------------------

START THE PIECE HERE:

-------------------------------------------------------

BLANKET – SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The blanket is made up of 20 squares. Work 4 of each of the 5 different squares. Work all the squares first before working them together and finally working an edge along both short sides of the blanket.

CROCHET SQUARE:
Work 33 chain stitches (including 3 chain stitches to turn with) using hook size 5.5 mm and Air – read CHAIN STITCH. Turn and work 1 treble crochet in the 4th chain stitch from the hook (= 2 treble crochets) – read CROCHET INFORMATION, work 1 treble crochet in each chain stitch to end of row = 31 treble crochets.
Then work back and forth according to the diagram – read SQUARES and QUADRUPLE-TREBLE CROCHET. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! When the diagram has been completed, cut and fasten the strand. The square measures approx. 24 x 24 cm.

ASSEMBLY:
Lay the squares out with the square numbers corresponding to the numbers in the illustration (4 squares in width and 5 in length). Make sure all squares are lying with the right side up and with the same crochet direction. The squares are worked together in length, then these lengths are worked together in width.
Work together as follows:
Lay 2 squares together, wrong side to wrong side. Work through both layers as follows: ** 1 double crochet in corner, * 3 chain stitches, skip forward approx. 1½-2 cm, work 1 double crochet in next stitch *. Work from *-* up to and including the next corner and work 3 chain stitches (= transition to next 2 squares) **. Repeat from **-** along the whole length and finish with 1 double crochet in the last corner. Cut and fasten the strands. Work all the lengths together, then the lengths together in width in the same way.

EDGE:
Now work an edge along the one short side of the blanket as follows: Fasten the strand with 1 slip stitch in the first stitch in the corner and then work 3 chain stitches (= 1 treble crochet), work 1 treble crochet in each of the remaining treble crochets along this side (= 4 squares of 31 stitches) = 124 treble crochets. Cut and fasten the strand. Work a similar edge along the other short side.

Hipp hurra! Jeg får det til nå👍 Blir utrolig fint.

Hei. Skullle gjerne hatt mulighet til å ta bilde, men kan ikke se at det er det...Utrolig fint teppe! Jeg har kjøpt garn og har strikket lapp 1, men synes trippel relieff masken som gå opp mot høyre blir fremtreden, slik som den andre. Kanskje jeg gjør noe feil? PS Elsker garnet! Det er superbløtt😊🧶 Håper på raskt svar da jeg har begynt heklingen. Mvh Grete Helle

Hej Grete, ja vist er det lækkert :) Jeg tror ikke du gør fejl... se gerne det 4.billede i opskriften som viser maskerne tydeligt. God fornøjelse!

Ik kan de tel tekeningen niet uitprinten

Dag Tiny,

Je kan bovenaan bij de patroon instructies op de knop 'patroon' klikken. (Daarna in het venster dat opent nogmaals bovenin op de link 'patroon afdrukken' klikken) om het volledige patroon met teltekening af te te drukken. Je kan ook met de rechter muisknop op de teltekening klikken, dan kiezen voor 'Afbeelding openen in een nieuw venster' en vervolgens deze afbeelding afdrukken vanuit de browser.

Bijzonder mooi. Leuk en afwisselend om te maken, lijkt me.

Lauren McRoberts 13.07.2019 - 15:47:

What are the dark circles on the diagram? I see dark squares, but there aren't any squares on any of the diagrams, I see diamonds, and I see open circles, but no dark circles on the explanation key, but there are a lot of them on the diagrams. Can you explain them please? Thank you!

DROPS Design 13.07.2019 kl. 23:56:

Dear Lauren, this symbol is dark circle with the line - it shows the direction of this relief stitch. See = RELIEF-TRIPLE-TREBLE CROCHET (only worked on row of treble crochets): Work 1 triple-treble crochet around 1 triple-treble crochet /quadruple-treble crochet from the previous row of treble crochets (do not work in loops, but around the triple-treble crochet /quadruple-treble crochet itself). Start of line = row where this relief-triple-treble crochet starts. The dot at the end of the relief-treble crochet = shows which triple-treble crochet /quadruple-treble crochet from the previous row of treble crochets you are working around. Happy crocheting!

Très joli, de beau Motif. J'adore

Caroline 29.06.2019 - 14:05:

Zou leuk zijn om deze als wekelijkse KAL te maken en met anderen te delen. Vraag me wel af of Drops Air niet teveel pluist voor een deken / omslagdoek
